Report for European Commission DG Environment - AEA/R/ED57281 Issue Number 11 Date 28/05/2012

Exploration and production of natural gas and oil within Europe has in the past been mainly focused on conventional resources that are readily available and relatively easy to develop. This type of fuel is typically found in sandstone, siltstone and limestone reservoirs. Conventional  extraction enables oil or gas to flow readily into boreholes.

Unconventional natural gas development has grown rapidly in the United States in recent years, driven largely by production from shale and tight sandstone formations. Although the pace of development will continue to ebb and flow with gas prices, production will almost certainly continue rising in the coming years.

New York State has been negligent in its performance of stewardship duties with regard to the consideration of hydrofracking. This failure in its service to the people of New York cannot be attributed solely to the wording of its environment conservation law.
